A new postdoctoral position is becoming available at CEA Saclay (45 min by train from the center of
Paris) in high-field multidimensional NMR applied to large biological assemblies, to be coupled with
an exciting ANR granted project on the mechanisms of DNA gating in bacteriophages. The work is
focussed on the molecular bases of the head-to-tail connector assembly and function in bacteriophage
SPP1. It is based on functional and structural experiments, and in particular the coupling of
liquid-state and solid-state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, X-ray crystallography, Electron Microscopy
and Molecular Modelling. Experience in advanced liquid-state and/or solid-state NMR is essential.
Expertise in protein purification and molecular modeling will be useful. Starting date is from
